I am receiving word from several people who have held a valid Illinois driver's license for many years but who recently received a notice stating that they have been audited by the Secretary of State and that their license would now be revoked.
What should you do if you have been audited by the Secretary of State and your license is now revoked? I can suggest one or two things. First, you can contact my office and send me the letter stating you have been audited so I can determine what legal basis they are revoking their license for. You can also send me a copy of your driving abstract so I can more fully analyze your record. Second, you can contact a local informal hearing officer to determine if the Secretary of State can resolve this matter for you or to determine if there has been a mistake and that you are eligible for reinstatement.
Most importantly, we want to determine that if you are revoked for the right reasons by the Secretary of State, we will make sure that you are legally eligible for an administrative hearing with the Secretary of State. Once we get the data, we can prepare you for the hearing and get you up and driving.
